Right team - apologies if this is the wrong place to ask but I wasn't sure where was best. Now, I'm a person that likes to supplement my night with some goodies - I'm sure many here partake. However this also tends to lead me to wanting and having a few cigarettes - they just hit right and even enhance my experience.

The thing is, I no longer smoke and would really like to avoid doing so whilst at Glastonbury (That taste in the morning 🤮). Does anyone know if vaping would scratch that itch? And if so - have any recommendation on what to buy for five days on the farm?

This will be my first tobacco-free Glastonbury - was hoping to bring a Vaporesso GTX One that I use for when I have a drink - however the tank/coil is stuck on my current one (was going to bring two to have charged) but that's out the window now because that would be a melt to try to fix in the SEC about 3am - I'm looking for decent advice on this too!

Buy a few Geek Bar temp vapes (or a greener solution would be to buy a refillable vape stick of some sort and fill with liquid as and when). I switched from cigs to vaping last year and it has scratched the itch ever since (bar the odd couple of cigs). Trouble is finding the liquid that works best for you. Some taste awful and it took me a while to get a reliable flavour and brand. Best to test a few beforehand if you're willing to. 

P.S There is no taste in the morning and your lungs won't feel (as) damaged

Am an avid Centreforce Radio listener, any info as to any of their DJs playing, or indeed where I may stumble across some Happy/Balearic/89-91 old School Rave tuneage ??

SEC for sure. They usually have an array of oldskool Mancunian Hacienda types playing.

Definitely something disposable / semi-disposable like @Dontthrowstones suggested, i'm guessing the last thing you want is to get hooked. A single disposable one from a corner shop like an elf bar would probably last the whole weekend even if you share it around a bit, they have a pretty good nicotine hit and 100s of flavours.

The Gas Tower had a Slipmatt/Altern8 set in 2019 but that was on the Monday at 4am (a definite men from boys separator - no chance I was making that one)! Bez's Acid House/Flying Bus is a surefire bet for tunes from that era. The Spaceport usually throws a couple of names spinning old school, Altern8, Mark XTC, etc. Klaus Blatter (aka Irvine Welsh) loves the acid house, definitely a lot of fun, he played the Spike last time around. You might also find the likes of Mark Archer around the Glade Lounge.

If you love your piano tunes, Davos is always a good time, usually opening the Glade one day. I think he's back again this year.

If you can't find a name you know, your best bet is to take a walk around the south east corner until you hear something that lands. You're bound to stumble across something amazing.

100%. A fruity burst will probably be better 

 

I absolutely love a tangerine when getting a bit freaky. Its life changing stuff

Something unusual on the decks, right at the beginning.

Grape - only ever fall into smoking on a bender like a stag or similar, and had a grape one from an off licence last time. Moreish.

@Dontthrowstones, @gfa, @Mezhyp1 - Thanks for your replies!

Realised there's actually a vape shop about a 3min walk from my house so might nip in to trial a couple pre-Glasto. Heading to Barcelona for a week at the start of June (Primavera!) so that will be a great test run.

Glad to hear it has the desired effect. Last year I just ended up on tobacco at both Latitude and Green Man so really keen to avoid that this year.

On a separate topic, was anyone else a bit disappointed to see so many great DJs listed for Silver Hayes rather than elsewhere on site? Appreciate we haven't seen Lonely Hearts Club at Glasto before which might be great but I've always thought Wow Stage is quite a generic "big room" tent that you see at every festival going, compared with all the weird and wonderful alternatives in SE corner. Also recall struggling to get into Wow for Four Tet and other big names back in 2019(?). I'm nitpicking and hopefully a lot of those artists will end up playing more than once haha

But isn't that supposed to be the drawer of the south east corner, or at least part of it? At the end of the day it's not the festival's dedicated dance area, Silver Hayes is.

The south east corner just isn't big enough to pick up all the slack that Arcadia doesn't have covered, and it's made it absurdly busy in recent years. I actually think it's a good thing if they try to spread the crowds around more, and I've got high hopes for the new Silver Hayes team based on what I've seen of Love Saves the Day.

Plus, we haven't even got Block 9 yet, which is always the best south east corner lineup anyway...

Careful on the elf bars they are very heavy nicotine.  20mg maybe. Go for something lower

Managed in 2019 to be baccy free and was fine. Vape and herbal vape .

It is certainly possible  good luck @zeppelin

Well aware, thats why I recommended just one instead of refillable. Pretty much all of the ones that are sold seem to be max legal nicotine near me.
